Sorry, I've just noticed maxyme that your sig build is very similar to what I'm going for in terms of cooler and mobo, could you tell me how much space you have between the edge of your cooler and the first RAM slot and how much clearance you have height-wise? I'm trying to work out whether a Corsair Vengeance 8GB kit would fit in the 1st & 3rd slots with two fans attached to a Hyper 212+. Very grateful for any info you can give me.

The fan on my hyper212+ is less than a quarter of a centimeter away. from the first ram stick. but luckilly my ram is short enough that it could go over it if needed. Theres about 3-4 cm clearence but my best guess would be no it probably won't fit. with the taller fins and the ram probably being a bit more fat than mine since mine barley has a heat spreader.... also i would check if your ram is compatible with the mobo, i have had tons of issues getting dual channel to work on this mobo. heres a list msi sent me of the officially tested ram sticks but its rather outdated and support isn't really help anyway. none the less, http://www.msi.com/file/test_report/TR10_2226.pdf

Thanks very much. I've already checked the compatibility, a number of people already using the set-up so it works in theory. What exactly do you mean the fan is a quarter of a centimetre away from the first RAM slot? Surely that means it would be fine? Or do you not have a second fan mounted on the 212+? Sorry if I'm being inexcusably dense. +Rep for tolerating my annoying questions.

lol the heatsink itself has a bunch of room so your right, as long as you only install one fan you can put it on the other side and you'll be fine. without the fan its a good inch or two away from the ram.
I only have a single fan installed on the hyper 212 but the fan is installed on the ram slot side.

So if the 212+ with a fan on the RAM side doesn't go over the 1st RAM slot then surely there's no problem? I feel as if I am massively misunderstanding what you have written or what I have read elsewhere, any chance you could post a quick picture, wouldn't need to be of any quality, it's probably the quickest way to be clear but don't bother if it's too much hassle.

the fan on the ram side is very very close. but no there shouldn't be a problem. your right. i thought the vengence was a little fatter than other ram sticks but they aren't...

I guess since i have my phone out i'll post an official post to join the nzxt phantom group. Here are some pics... soon i'll be getting a led kit and putting it around the top fan, front fan and side fans to make it light my profile pic.

Sorry my phone sucks at taking pictures sometimes and is great other times... sun must have messed up the outside pics...

You know there is a CPU cable hole on the top left side of the case so you don't have to run that cable across the ram.
